Lets have some fun with edible play dough 😋 – West Pack Lifestyle Blog

We have had our West Pack mom’s & dads keeping their little ones busy during lock down with loads of crafty and fun activities. A question often asked is – Is this safe for my little one to eat? We had a little help from our friends at OXO and found their amazing yummy edible play dough recipe (made with ingredients you already have at home)😍

Marshmallow Play Dough


6 large marshmallows

2 teaspoons coconut oil

Food coloring

4 tablespoons cornstarch


  1. Warm the marshmallows and coconut oil in your microwave for 30 seconds, then stir in a few drops of food coloring. Use as many drops as you need to create the color you want. After you’ve got the right color, stir in the cornstarch. When the dough is cool enough to handle, start kneading it.
  2. If the dough still feels too sticky, add a little more cornstarch.

Best way to store your homemade play dough is in a airtight container, we have loads of options available in stores.
